cherry-hand-pies-bonappetitHopefully Memorial Day and June allowed you some time to practice grilling because this upcoming holiday weekend is all about being the BBQ Master and picnicking in style. As I mentioned last week, we’re heading to friend’s farm for the celebrations and I hope to bring these cherry hand pies. It’s a nice update to an All-American dessert and brings back childhood memories of stopping at the corner market after school for a Hostess fruit pies (yeah, remember those?!). If my fellow farm party attendees are reading this, my back-up plan is a peach and berry cobbler should the pies fail.

As for the outfit, I’m all about keeping it elegantly simple and comfortable, especially when it’s day of relaxing with friends.july-fourth-outfit-sparrowsoirees

eyelet camisole / striped straw fedora / notched v-neck teechino shorts / metallic sandals 

And because I’m asked a lot when I post clothing: yes, I actually own two of the above items. The sandals, in neon pink, which are great for summer days and they’re also major compliment magnets (seriously, it’s like stepping into commercial-land where people randomly compliment attire). And the v-neck, in white, which is a perfect layer for summer evenings.

What about you? Any plans for the Fourth – or for the long weekend?
